2018 BMW M2 Competition

After a long wait and plenty speculation, the smallest model to come out of the M Division has left the stables and it's meaner than ever.

BMW kept the update subtle, but what makes the M2 Competition stand out, it's the heart, under the bonnet one can find the older brother's engine, it's the 3.0L - S55 engine, detuned to 405hp, enough to slinghsot the mighty coupe to 100km.h in 4.2s. There's a bunch of other mechanical goodies, as the car received a carbon strut-brace, a revised electromechanical power steering system and an “enhanced” Active M Differential. The car has also has axles from the M3 and M4 as well as revised suspension which uses forged aluminum components out back.

The braking system has also been improved on US-spec models as there are larger discs that measure 400mm front and 380mm rear. Engineers also installed six-piston calipers up front and four-piston calipers in the rear.

the same cooling system as theM4 with the Competition Package. It includes a central radiator, two side radiators and an additional engine oil cooler. Models with the M DCT also receive a transmission oil cooler.  Customers can opt for a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed DCT.

Outside, there's little difference, in the front there's a revised bumper, BMW switched to uni-grille now, M side mirrors and subtle changes to rear bumper. 

Inside, there's Bucket-style shaped seats with illuminated M2 logo on backrest, with the posibility or 2 stitching color ( Orange and Blue ).

Deliveries will start somewhere in the summer.
